Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Miami, Mary Kay and Mercedes-Benz – Oh My!

 Miami, Mary Kay and Mercedes Benz   Oh My!

A few weekends ago, I attended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2012 in Miami, as a correspondent for Mary Kay – and they put me up in a gorgeous room at Fashion Week headquarters, The Raleigh Hotel.

I had the most fabulous time in South Beach, getting acquainted with the Coyne PR beauty girls and the other blogger correspondents, Annie Tomlin from BellaSugar.com and Lizzie Dunlap from RealBeauty.com.

In between makeovers, delish dinners and runway shows, I was also able to schedule some mojito-sipping downtime with one of my BFFs, Aimee.

If you’re ever in Miami, I highly recommend the Raleigh Hotel. The rooms, service and ambiance were incredible – and the picturesque pool was just the cherry on top.

I had the time of my life…and I owe it all to you, Mary Kay!

Kardashian-Style Acrylic Makeup Organizer Giveaway!

kim+khloe+kourtney+kardashian Kardashian Style Acrylic Makeup Organizer Giveaway!

As a beauty blogger who is slightly obsessed with the Kardashian sisters, I receive a ton of emails – asking about Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian’s style, favorite beauty products and makeup application secrets. It’s one of the reasons why I enlisted Kim’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, to contribute a weekly column to Spoiled Pretty – Makeup Mondays With Mario.

But the most popular question I receive is where people can purchase an acrylic makeup organizer like the one featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Not only have I found one, but this week, I’m giving three away!

bride Makeup Mondays With Mario: Photo Friendly Foundation

Hi!

My wedding is in a month and I’m looking for a foundation base that would look perfect in photos. I know I should avoid products with SPF, but is there any specific product recommendation I could get, Mario? It would be much appreciated!!!

diorskin+sigma Makeup Mondays With Mario: Photo Friendly Foundation
Hi Sara,

Congradulations! A great foundation to use on your wedding day is Dior’s Diorskin Sculpt Line-Smoothing Lifting Makeup. I’m a fan of lifting and line-smoothing products, regardless of age.

I recommend applying this foundation with Sigma’s Synthetic Face Kit. The kit comes with three face brushes that can be used with liquid or powder products. Buff the Diorskin Sculpt makeup onto your skin using the flat top Kabuki brush for a flawless looking, high definition effect. Good luck and best wishes on your big day!

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!

xo,

Mario

Uggs Sale at HauteLook!

uggs+hautelook Uggs Sale at HauteLook!

I don’t care what anyone says about Uggs being ugly. I adore them. They are some of the most comfortable footwear I’ve ever worn (I own three pairs of boots and a pair of slippers). Seriously, when you wear them, it feels like you’re walking on clouds.

The downside is that Uggs are expensive. But don’t be tempted by shearling-lined charlatans. Nothing is as comfy cozy as the real deal. Your best bet is to patiently wait ’til Uggs go on sale – and then make your move.

That’s exactly what I plan to do on Monday, July 25 at 11am…because HauteLook is having an Uggs sale! I probably shouldn’t tell you this because I don’t want too much shopping competition. But you know I can’t keep a secret from my Spoiled Pretty sisters.
So whether you’re an Uggs newbie looking to make your first purchase or a seasoned vet adding to your collection, I suggest you set an alarm for this sale – because I predict the stock will go quickly.

And if you’re not already a member of HauteLook, I highly suggest that you join right now (membership is free) – so you’re signed up and ready to shop when the sale kicks off on Monday.

It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil

Posted on by daneen in Charity, Eyebrows | Leave a comment
It+Cosmetics+Brow+Power+Universal+Brow+Pencil It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil

For the past few years, when it comes to eyebrow products, I have been in a monogamous relationship with Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil. I’ve never been brow endowed (the gene skipped me and went to my younger sister), and the Diorshow pencil has served me well. The only issue I ever had with the DiorShow was its staying power. 99% of the time, it’s fine and the pigment stays put. But if it’s sweltering and I start sweating, it doesn’t last (literally) a hot minute.

So what’s a sweaty, follicularly-challenged gal to do? Call up QVC, that’s what.

You see, QVC sells a fabulous product from It Cosmetics called the Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil. It’s truly universal because it transforms and adjusts to all brow hair colors. Apply lighter, softer strokes to match lighter color hair, including blonde and silver. Press harder for darker hair, including medium brown to black. As a finishing touch, lightly brush through brows with the spooly brush for a natural, polished look. A full brow-lift instruction diagram is included with each pencil.

The oval shaped tip creates a natural looking, believable brow and is perfect for both thin and thick brows. And an exclusive “Brow Enhancing Complex” uses a patent-pending blend of cutting-edge ingredients to target the look of brow hair loss, and helps restore your brow hair follicles – promoting the look of healthy hair growth and health.

But the best thing about this pencil is its staying power. It’s water- and smudge-proof. So even if it’s so hot that your face is melting off – like that evil dude from Raiders of The Lost Ark (left), your eyebrows will stay put.

And for every Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil sold, It Cosmetics gives one to Look Good…Feel Better, an American Cancer Society program that teaches female cancer patients beauty tips to look better and feel good about how they look during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

While the product isn’t exclusive to QVC, you get more bang for your buck buying from them. One Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil retails for $24, but at QVC, you can get two for $31.82…or one Brow Power Pencil plus a highlighting pencil for just $26.34.
